Dr. Lach’s Passion for Treating Hormone Deficiency

Dr. Lach, who is Ivy League-trained, brings over 30 years of experience in treating patients with hormone deficiencies. He is also Boston’s most experienced plastic surgeon and cosmetic medicine practitioner. Dr. Lach founded Core New England for the purpose of providing patients with effective treatment for hormone deficiency and the negative effects of aging, which he currently does through Boston hormone replacement therapy.

Over the years, he came to realize that cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery alone were not always the answer for patients with severe hormone deficiencies. He found that by properly addressing the root of the problem—the hormone imbalance—his patients were then able to see successful results in both their quality of life and their recovery from disease. It was this epiphany that launched him into a new direction for his medical practice—treating patients who are suffering from the adverse effects of low hormone levels.

The treatment philosophy used by Dr. Lach begins with a thorough diagnostic process that is used to determine what type of treatment is most beneficial for the patient. It begins with the patient meeting Dr. Lach and his medical staff for a full physical examination, detailed medical history, and blood testing in his office. Following that, Dr. Lach then carefully designs a protocol based on any deficiencies that become apparent, as well as on the patient’s personal goals or areas of complaint (low energy, loss of libido, fat gains, etc.). Through the use of his unmatched expertise and quality care, Dr. Lach has been able to help numerous patients significantly change their lives for the better.


Dr. Lach is a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Surgeons who receive this board certification are required to meet numerous rigorous standards. For example, they must have passed certain evaluations and exams, and they must have also completed extensive training in their specialty area. These standards help show that a surgeon is qualified to perform reconstructive and plastic surgery on various parts of the body (face, neck, breasts, hands, etc.) on patients of all ages.

Dr. Lach maintains membership in multiple professional organizations, including the:

  • American Society of Plastic Surgeons (active member)
  • American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (active member)
  • American College of Surgeons (fellow)
